Here’s a completely worthwhile way to spend money in a state that is broke as shit:
Federal, state and local officials carrying out a counter-terrorism drill in Northern California Wednesday played out a scenario in which local marijuana growers set off bombs and took over the Shasta Dam, the nation’s second largest, to free an imprisoned comrade.
Harral said the drill took 18 months to plan and cost the [Bureau of Reclamation] alone $500,000. The other agencies covered their own costs.
This seems perfectly realistic.
